“To be effective in schools, character education must involve everyone—school staff, parents, students, and community members—and be part of every school day. It must be integrated into the curriculum as well as school culture. When this happens and school communities unite around developing character, schools see amazing results.”
On May 10 2018, Character Education Philippines (CEP) visited Reedley for the School of Character Accreditation, wherein observations and in-depth discussions with our students, parents, and teachers took place regarding the school’s effectiveness in promoting character formation.
Upon reviewing their findings and deliberate evaluation from this visit, Reedley International School was awarded the title “School of Character” by the Center for 4th and 5th Rs Asia, otherwise known as the Thomas Lickona Institute for Asia.
CEP is a private initiative to establish the Philippine version of www.character.org a pioneering group in the US, which has been working to benefit society through school reforms that address not only academics, but also moral, social, emotional, and ethical issues.
